  • An interesting post by Elnia (the barkeep over at The Pink Pigtail Inn) comparing car and gaming business models.
  • Gnomer of Armaggedon's Coming shares a lil' secret about in-game envy (and started the support group too, I think!)
  • Blizzard's garden is full of carrots.  Both Darraxus the Warrior and Tobold discuss the dangling carrots within the game that keep players going, for better or worse.
  • Elleiras of Fel Fire ponders cross-server recruiting, especially of the PvE to PvP transfer flavor, as well as, how to (or whether or not to…) sell the server as a whole in the pitch.
  • Tamarind of Standing at the Back in My Sissy Robe (a newish blog I've recently found and am reading) posted an epically hilarious (yet a smidge embarrassing) story of emailing screenshots to himself and having to explain to the boss that he wasn't looking at anything… naughty.
  • Also, a farewell to Blogatelle.  They provided some wonderful RP discussions, thoughts, and ideas.  Even though I no longer actively RP in-game, their posts still help inspire character ideas for me.  If you've never checked them out before, I would still recommend their archives.  Or at least this interesting post about why so many players seem to be threatened by those of us that enjoy “unintended” play.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
